India has chosen a supplier of new machine guns for its army

198

India is engaged in the modernization of the arsenal of small arms weapons their armed forces. A supplier has already been found, and this is not Russia. Although between our countries there have always been strong ties in the arms trade.


Recently, the Indian leadership is concerned about the increasing mortality of small arms, which are equipped with units of the ground forces of the country. The implementation of this task requires a difficult military-political situation in the state of Jammu and Kashmir on the border with Pakistan, as well as in those states of India where various rebel groups still operate.

Recently, the Indian Ministry of Defense signed a contract with Israel for the supply of Negev 7,62X51 mm LMG machine guns. Recall that the Negev light machine gun is one of the most famous Israeli-made machine guns. It is an automatic weapon with gas automatic and air-cooled barrel, and is available in two versions - standard and shortened.

Negev NG-7 7,62 × 51 mm was first introduced in 2012. With a barrel length of 508 mm, the LMG can be used in semi-automatic and fully automatic modes, as well as used to launch grenades.

The weight of the weapon is 7,95 kg without a magazine and accessories. The total length of the LMG is 1100 mm and the retracted length is 1030 mm. In semi-automatic mode, the Negev 7,62 × 51 mm fires 600 rounds per minute, while in fully automatic mode the rate of fire reaches 750 rounds. The magazine can be either an assault drum for 100 or 125 rounds, or an ammunition belt.

The machine gun, if necessary, can be equipped with several optical sights, such as a reflex sight with day / night illumination, a multi-purpose reflex sight with two laser pointers (visible and infrared), a weapon sight with a red dot, a magnifying sight x3 with a TAVOR adapter, a day sight with x4 magnification, multifunctional night vision mini-monocular, self-luminous reflector for 40 mm grenade launcher and laser pointer.

Negev machine guns are in service with the armies of a number of states - Israel, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Thailand, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine and India.

Note that in 2018, India has already signed a contract for the purchase of 40949 such machine guns. Then this decision was the first large-scale modernization of the arsenal of small arms of the Indian army in the last twenty years. The main requirement of the Indian command, which was presented to the purchased weapons, was its compatibility with all additional accessories, including optical sights.

Currently, India has decided to purchase an additional number of machine guns. According to the terms of the contract, approved by the country's defense minister Rajnat Singh, India will acquire 16 modern machine guns. As emphasized in the country's military department, the Negev 479x7,62 mm LMG is a battle-tested weapon that is used in several countries around the world.

The Indian military believes that a machine gun will significantly increase mortality during the battle, allowing soldiers to shell a large territory. Accordingly, the combat power of the ground forces units will increase, which will lead to an advantage during clashes with the enemy.

At one time, India considered the possibility of acquiring small arms from the Russian Federation, but then decided to abandon this idea and bought machine guns from Israel. And this is not the first refusal of the Indian side, our traditional partner in the arms trade, to conclude contracts with Russia.

      Dancing ...

      The question is not whether they “dance” or not, and not even with what? For example, “tambourine” or “harmonica”!
      The main thing is to understand the reasons for the choice of Indians and not only them!
      Azerbaijan is in the list of machine gun operators!
      So there is a signal, now we need to work on the bugs!

        Yes, they can dance with elephants. Our political mistakes. Arms_ is generally a political product of trade. In general, I don’t understand how it is possible to maintain an army with such a venerable arms supply? I’m silent about aviation in general; who will throw them into the fifth generation besides us?

          It would be interesting to compare the prices of our Israeli machine guns, and for others - it would be interesting to know the prices. Only the technical characteristics do not determine the choice of Indians.

            Rosoboronexport prices are sky-high !!!
            PM was offered at 28 thousand rubles in 2012. And Glock at 32 thousand rubles, so consider where power is novelty and quality!
            A good bullet, and costs no more than RMB.

                        Makar stupidly exists, and if there was a modern pistol in the army and the police, the lives of the fighters would be saved more.
                        For a long time they got rid of UAZs and gas-66, and Makar still. Thanks to people like you.

      Why's that? The world is full of good manufacturers of weapons, in particular machine guns. Some survivability is not inferior to ours. And the workmanship is superior. In addition, I do not remember that Israel would make poor weapons — these guys have been living in war all their lives.

        Are you talking about this notorious story with a captive pilot? Just do not misinterpret the facts. It was not the weapon that was to blame, but the grease. After its removal, the Germans also began to shoot weapons. More about engine warming up, remember the air filters in Iraq.
        As for the M-16 ... imagine, Kalash also needs to be cleaned.

    Negev machine guns are in service with the armies of a number of states - Israel, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Thailand, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine and India.

    Of course, historically no one in these countries has a single foot in arms. Moreover, India bought the first batch and still wants to. Judging by our tenders, Indians are very meticulous buyers.
    Just remember how ours decided to vaparize the repaired Gorshkov through their ass, like a deeply modernized Vikromaditya. The scandal was notable.

      Banderland also bought (or maybe gave) a small batch of Jewish rifles. So, the opinion of the soldiers on these trunks is strictly negative. Alas, the specific reasons are not known, but the reviews are purely obscene.

            Reminded me of one situation during the Second World War. I met the opinion that our soldiers did not like Simonov’s rifle. They considered her capricious and not reliable. But the Germans considered it a great success to get Simonov’s rifle as a trophy.

            Stupidity is utter. Any commander needs a subordinate who thinks for himself. Otherwise, the whole service of this commander will be to think for yourself and give out valuable instructions. The main initiative of subordinates is directed in the right direction. And as soon as the sergeant departs for 2 km. from the commander - who will think? There were no mobile phones during my service, and there are not many ordinary ones either. Therefore, call every 2 minutes. and it was impossible to specify the tasks. You have to think for yourself.

General Staff, they bring him a small batch of Tavors, then when he is not afraid to take a pullback, because the gun is not bad and everything is justified; they already feed a large batch. Invited again to Israel, for .... display of agricultural technology.

        As a once "active PC user (M), I can see that a solid tape, with the ability to recharge, is more likely not a disadvantage, but an advantage.
        But the fact that the "Negev" has a combined power supply and is equipped with an additional "assault" barrel is a plus.
        The Israeli machine gun also has trims for the "body kit" and ergonomics. I watched several videos with him, and noted for myself a very comfortable grip "for the bipod".
        PC (M) cannot boast of this, even with my not-so-short arms. Yes, and the dangling bipods themselves do not really contribute to this.

              Accuracy in Pecheneg is noticeably higher, as is the resource of the barrel, the bipod at the muzzle added accuracy. "From the belly", of course, it is more convenient to shoot holding on to the bipod, which of course Pecheneg does not allow. But I will say right away that optics makes sense in Pecheneg.

      Indians simply switch everything to 7,62x51. Assault and sniper rifles, machine guns. A cartridge without a protruding edge works fine everywhere.
      True, a machine gun with a tape is slightly inferior in reliability to a machine gun with a cartridge with a protruding edge, but magazine weapons - without problems.

      More compact. Pecheneg, like the entire PC family, has a hefty receiver. On the Negev, 7,62 it is noticeably smaller. And in general, the Negev 7,62 is better controlled in unstable positions for firing - as it seems to me (although this is not important). Still, again, as it seems to me, with the Negev 7.62 it is corny more convenient to manage - more compactness. Also - a great opportunity to install a variety of stray from a different bipod to sighting devices.
      Although, all of the above I have said, does not make Negev7,62 generally better than PKP / PKM / PC.
      But the engineering staff of the Russian Federation should not rest on Grandfather’s laurels, but move their brains and work for the future ...
      By the way, I remind you that the Russian Federation, once, bought the Negev 5,56 batch and the fighters of the same 45th Airborne Special Forces Command used it with pleasure. (Which, in turn, raised another wave of Wishlist 5,56-mm machine gun under the tape in the Russian Federation.)

                A soldier drags like a horse. Another machine to drag on yourself. In the box. Our army boxes, it feels like they came up on purpose to carry it extremely close to impossibility. That’s clear. They were designed by civilians. With the expectation that the army is modern. Square - carry. You throw in the car and drive. But the bosses do not care how to carry. All the same, not to them.
                What the hell ammunition point? Where? At the shooting range as much as you like. Where in the field? Dali zinc: on, drag. This is not a commander’s business to take care of any nonsense. Nobody will ask for tapes being stuffed with hands. And for beds, boots, etc. they will ask. For a lost machine in general in a 10-fold size.

    The article says about the additional purchase of Negev machine guns chambered for 7,62x51 mm. An additional batch of machine guns to the existing ones. If India already uses this cartridge - why does it need our machine guns under another cartridge? If RMB had an option for the same cartridge, then options would be possible! But PKM has only tape power, and the Negev also has storefront food. And apparently it is simpler in design, with the ensuing consequences for reliability. Plus also a single fire. Russia has long needed to take a bezrantny cartridge, which would simplify machine guns for universal nutrition. The cartridge of 7,62x54 mm is inconvenient for shops. Such an opinion.

      For some reason, everyone, anyone richer than us. And they were able to change the cartridge to normal. Only we cry that it is expensive. For a long time already everything would be done. If something needs to be done, it is better early.

      No connection. The cartridges are different.

    Negev, by the way, was created with an eye on the PC. A completely excellent, reliable weapon, as well as a PC.

    In Russia, there are simply no analogues in prom. production. The original AK-12 was replaced with a fake from AK-74.

    "..... Israel, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Thailand, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine and India ....."
    The first are developers / manufacturers, it would be strange if they used someone else's weapons.
    The latter are customers who are known for their desire to get for free not only a modern product, but also the technology of its production (not a single manufacturer in their right mind will put their MOST MODERN developments on the counter).
    And between the first and last set of countries, which are not at all an indicator of the level of defense and the level of equipment of troops.
    So ... let Zita and Gita continue to create in their troops a "vinaigrette" - a flag in their hands and a machine gun around their necks.

    I wonder how the Indians are going to serve their entire range of weapons? A bunch of different brands from different manufacturers with different calibers.

    Why do we need to sell our weapons right and left? The task of weapons is to protect our homeland in the first place. Our weapons should not be budget revenues, because they are politically unstable goods. They want to buy from us, well, please. No, well, do not care, the main thing is that our army should be fully armed with modern standards.
